The re chambers were seven mag to begin with. The browning just had to be reamed to STW, no set back needed. That thing is STUPID accurate!

What did yall do about the detachable mag, or was this at the time before Browning used the detachable mags?

I believe he put a 375 HH magazine in it. I know that he had to single feed it at first.

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

Thanks for the info. I had debated on converting my 7Mag to either a .280 AI or another 7mmSTW. Just trying to figure out the most cost-effective option. I know keeping it a 7Mag would be the cheapest option. But I just want to have another custom right now, and the Browning is the only rifle I have that has things about it I want to change. I'll probabyl just rebarrel it and leave it a 7Mag.

My smith has been using Douglas since he started smithing 50+ years ago, so he gets a great deal on them. Thinking Douglas XX Air-Gauged (their top-tier barrels) @ 26" finished length, 1:9 twist, and having my smith chamber it for 7mm RemMag. Should be a shooter. What do yall think?

Factory contour or somewhat heavier. I've heard good things about Douglas barrels.
